We are thrilled to introduce the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta, occurring monthly beginning on October 20. Named in honor of Dr. Rembe, who passed away this spring, and inspired by his love of Los Poblanos, his curiosity, intelligence and community relations, this series aims to celebrate his legacy by promoting stimulating conversations rooted in the core values and mission of Los Poblanos. The lecture series is also a nod to the rich history of La Quinta Cultural Center of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Simms family held lectures and events that promoted the arts.
As we work to preserve La Quinta as an important architectural landmark, we also aim to emulate its dynamic programming through our own curated events and experiences. Join us for a culturally rich day at La Quinta by joining us for afternoon tea before the evening lecture.
